Olympic Odds

Just some miscellaneous odds from the Olympics that I thought interesting:

- USA men's volleyball is only a 15-1 shot to win gold. Six other nations are favoried over the US with Brazil being the favorite at even money (even France is favored over the US - France is a 9-1 shot)

- Only Cuba (5-2) and Brazil (1-1) are favored over the US women's volleyball team (8-1)

- It is an even money bet that the US medal count will be higher than the combined total medal count of Australia and Germany

- The over / under for the number of US medals is 104.5

- The US men's baseketball team is a 2-9 favorite to win the gold medal while the US women's team is a 1-8 favorite.

- Angola is a 500-1 shot to win the men's basketball gold medal
